Apple's CEO says company is 'cooking' up new stuff to reverse stock drop
100 engineers in Cupertino working feverishly on such a product which would have multi-touch support. Features are said to include the ability to respond to text messages, list phone calls, rearrange playlists and a recent patent application revealed how the device could be used to read a map with the flick of the wrist.
Apple's shares reached an all-time peak on September 21st at $705, the day that the company launched the Apple iPhone 5. Since then, Apple investors have complained about the company focusing on updating the Apple iPhone and iPad and not launching new products. There has been no earth-shattering new product since the death of co-founder Steve Jobs. Apple closed Wednesday at $444.57.

Yes you did, that's why you posted that.
18. darkkjedii (Posts: 8915; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Nope didn't hurt me at all, and I'm highly intelligent... That's why I choose apple as my daily driver. Stupid people are the ones that troll every apple article, everyday, just to post stupid comments that have absolutely no impact on anything, other than green thumbs and lol's from their troll friends ... Ya know, like the one you just posted. Hmmmm.

In other news: the downfall continues.
Let's see what new things you can cook up, Cook.
3. darkkjedii (Posts: 8915; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Well fry it. It'll cook faster that way. I want my iPhone math, 5S, mini 2, and iPad 5. Lets get it crackin TIMMERRRR

Question? If Gallito says "if it ain't broken don't fix it," then why does apple need to continue releasing new products? What improvements are you most looking forward to in the new devices you listed? Micro sd, HDMI, BT file transfer, widgets?
52. darkkjedii (Posts: 8915; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Well honestly you'd have to ask apple that, not me. I do think iOS is very functional yet stale, I look forward to a slightly new look while keeping the great core functionality intact. Micro sd has never been a need due to apple always putting a ton of internal memory in their devices, HDMI is already there, we'll see where they take Bluetooth 4.0, and widgets would be nice although on my note 2 I have a few of them on the screen and don't really change them.

London bridge is falling down falling down falling down
opppssss.... sorry wrong song...
apple stock is falling down falling down falling down
apple stock is falling down falling down falling down
My fair droid
Apple should let the stock price 'settle down' to the real value sooner.
The more Apple 'cook' the price to be up there, the harder it be when it fall.

Come on now Apple, dont do me like that! Please, I've had so much fun watching your yearly presentations, laughing my ass off when you release identical products over and over again. Why do you suddenly have to act all.. innovative and stuff? That's some real new-age bulls**t man!

cheaper iphone 512MB 480x resolution, single core 499 for 16GB
15. Whateverman (Posts: 3156; Member since: 17 May 2009)
I'm looking forward to seeing what Apple comes up with. Hopefully they've abandoned the 5 year plan Jobs had in place, because iOS is in desperate need of a makeover. Six years with no real change, other than the Notification Shade...oops...Notification Center, is far too long. This whole "iWatch" idea sounds like crap, but who knows, maybe they'll revolutionize the watch industry next.
Me personally, I would love to see a 5 inch, all metal iPhone with expandable memory, 13 ultrapixel camera, an S Pen like stylus, 1080p screen, NFC, and wireless charging. Will they do it, maybe not. But it would a monster!
19. QWIKSTRIKE (Posts: 780; Member since: 09 Mar 2010)
The money they spent in law suits they could have put in to R&D to push the envelope again. They had to see it coming, but instead of getting ahead of the game they tried to block innovative competition.
Too bad, because they re invented the cell phone game. Had it not been for them we would be stuck with poor performing windows. It took Apple to cause every one to up their game!

Apple is cooking up new stuff , Maybe apple will cook Tim Cook.. as their new item.. iTCook...ahahaha
17. InspectorGadget80 (Posts: 5472; Member since: 26 Mar 2011)
What your boring iwatch is that it? You guys @ Apple haven't innovate anything in years. just purchase & copy others
53. darkkjedii (Posts: 8915; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
It's not out yet, how could you possibly know it'll be boring?
65. lolioslol (banned) (Posts: 182; Member since: 10 Dec 2012)
because it's apple. You know apple right? The company that's still using the same OS/UI it had 6 years ago? The company that builds 2 things: PCs and ipods of varying sizes/functionality?
What a stupid question from a stupid man.
23. dorianb (Posts: 325; Member since: 24 Oct 2012)
One day people woke up and realized a 4" screen & a six year old stale OS just doesn't cut it.

"There has been no earth-shattering new product since the death of co-founder Steve Jobs."
And we will never see an earth-shattering product because Steve was the brains "and" the muscle behind the entire operation. Apple/Tim Cook is so afraid to take risk and we get a product that is either a downgrade in a pretty package (ipad mini) or a product that just catches up (iPhone 5). I don't even know who runs Samsung but their kicking a$$. Samsung takes risk and we get the Note which some people said was going to be a failure (Gizmodo). The S3 and Note 2 is like freaking Batman and Robin and the iPhone 5 is the penguin (black, white and 4 feet tall).
And now we got the HTC One that beats out the iPhone 5 in every category.

Watch is interesting stuff? Apple or any other company such crap would never replace my 7 mm think watch with a white dial, roman numerals and hour and min hand 18 carat gold plated conventional wrist watch.
Everything else what Apple calls is "NEW" is nothing but the same old version presented as NEW :)

As awesome as your watch sounds, duz it has ANGREE BOIDS?!?!?
28. nikenturd (unregistered)
APPLE is done.... ever since their megalomaniac leader died, they offered nothing but a rehash of their previous products with incremental upgrades...then they would label it as ''revolutionary''.... Samsung has been blazing past them in terms of tech advancements they hardly could catch up
29. 9thWonderful (Posts: 228; Member since: 24 Jan 2013)
i hope its something in at least a (rumored) 4.8" screen, NFC (Wifi-direct/S Beam range-like capable for at least photos/recorded video & non-proprietary music files) in addition to what Apple already does well. it better not be just some smart watch.
35. shamataa (Posts: 202; Member since: 07 Dec 2011)
It's too late Apple no matter what you do u will still be number 2. Great stuff my ass. maybe to you but not to us. b/c their are other options that will do a much better job than you do when you decide to launch those things..
36. Taters (Posts: 2104; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
I used to own an iPad 2, iPad 3, and an iPhone 4s. The lawsuits and the fact that they had 100 billion in the bank, another free billion from Samsung, and STILL raised the Canadian price of the iPhone 5 from $649.99 to $699.99 really shows how much they were raping me before and how they will increase the size of their loyal customers butthole to feed their greed. They are even getting money from HTC Android phones by using prior art.
The Apple fans need to draw the line somewhere.
This image as the greedy villain is what is lowering their stock, not a lack of products.
41. Tre-Nitty (Posts: 458; Member since: 16 Nov 2010)
So you're mad that they are very profitable? Makes sense I guess....Hater!
60. Taters (Posts: 2104; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
Nope. they are the greediest company alive and like to bully people for inventions that they didn't create. That is why I dislike them.
56. darkkjedii (Posts: 8915; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
You actually sound jealous of apples success. They're not raping anyone, rape is a violent act of force. I don't see apple forcing anyone to buy their products. Apple make quality stuff that people like, or dislike, if you don't wanna buy it then don't. If you wanna buy it go buy it, and just enjoy your purchase. Tre-Nitty is correct, you're just a hater...Tater. Tater the hater should be you're screen name.
61. Taters (Posts: 2104; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
Oh no, they are raping your butthole pretty good. Any company that charges 5 x more than their competitors, who makes better products, is raping their customers.
42. preet27in (banned) (Posts: 173; Member since: 07 Jul 2012)
APPLE IS BECOMING THE MOST BORING PRODUCT company now. literally no innovation at all.making fool out of ppl with same old stuff. look at apple iphone5. whats new? nothing really. increased screen length just for the sake of doing it because other companies r making bigger screens. wow apple.... ur idiots. and on the other hand the screen width remains the same.no nfc. wow apple again!!!! APPLE----------- U R FIRED !!!!!!!!!!
44. speckledapple (Posts: 877; Member since: 29 Sep 2011)
Interesting. The response is what will tell the tale. If the new product they are working on does little to help their situation, we could very well be singing a different tune to Apple.

"Cook told those assembled that Apple is working on "great stuff" that could reverse its recent stock price decline."
Like what? A time machine? LOL

You're a huge apple fan. You should know.
49. chadrick0814 (Posts: 208; Member since: 23 Nov 2011)
HApple is working on "great stuff." Instead of a new thunder adapter on the side or yet another row of icons, they are probably are working on all new lawsuits and requests of bans....great stuff!
51. frydaexiii (Posts: 1144; Member since: 01 Dec 2011)
lol, taking the smartwatch idea from everyone who presented at CES, loading it with an even watered down iOS is not "working on "great stuff"" Mr Cook...
